Diane Sawyer’s £18.9 Million Estate for Sale: A Seaside Oasis with Private Beach and Multiple Homes

The sprawling estate of renowned American broadcast journalist Diane Sawyer is now on the market, offering a unique opportunity to own a piece of paradise complete with four houses and a private beach.

Famous for her work on ABC World News Tonight, Good Morning America, and 20/20, Diane Sawyer retired in 2014 after the passing of her husband, acclaimed film director Mike Nichols. The estate, known as Chip Chop, spans an impressive 20 acres and was acquired by Sawyer in 1995 for £4.3 million ($5.4 million).

Originally designed in the 1930s for actress Katharine Cornell, the estate features a mile of secluded shoreline along the homes.

This iconic compound, available for sale for the first time in almost three decades, comprises four distinct residences.

The primary three-bedroom home showcases 5,000 square feet of exquisite wooden interiors. The expansive living room is flooded with natural light through large windows and features a wood-burning fireplace that adds warmth and charm.

For relaxation beyond the beach, residents can indulge in the generously sized swimming pool or engage in a friendly tennis match on the private court.

The conservatory serves as an informal dining area, offering guests a captivating view of the stunning surroundings.

The estate also includes a two-bedroom caretaker’s cottage and two beach houses constructed in 2007, each thoughtfully designed to capture the mesmerising sea vistas.

Situated in Martha’s Vineyard in New England, this remarkable property is now available for combined purchase as two lots, listed at $24 million (£18.9 million).

Prospective buyers have the unique opportunity to own an idyllic coastal oasis steeped in history and charm, with access to a private beach and a collection of homes that offer the perfect blend of comfort and elegance.
